PRODUCER CALL OUT

After a successful couple of years working on every aspect of production and distribution, we are looking to EXPAND OUR TEAM. Paper Smokers’ practice is developing with new solo shows, ensemble work and international touring. 

As projects increase we are looking for a PRODUCER to help us shape the years to come and help with the growing of the collective. The areas we most need support in are DEVELOPMENT and FUNDRAISING (securing future funding and partners for new projects), TOURING (tour development and management) and occasionally BUDGETING. 

We are keen on collaborating with emerging producers who want to gain more experience. We are particularly interested in INTERNATIONAL candidates who are warm and engaging, comfortable in selling work and negotiating agreements and finally who are CURIOUS and always on the lookout for opportunities and new approaches to creating work.

The ROLE is currently budgeted with an hourly rate of £15 for roughly 1 day a week with the option of extending it dependent on funding.

Please send EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST to paper.smokers@gmail.com by the 3rd of March 2019 along with a reference.

THANK YOU!

The name PAPER SMOKERS comes from a poem by Cesare Pavese


D’un tratto gridò / che non era il destino se il mondo soffriva, / se la luce del sole strappava bestemmie: / era l’uomo, colpevole. / Almeno potercene andare, / far la libera fame, rispondere no / a una vita che adopera amore e pietà, / la famiglia, il pezzetto di / terra, a legarci le mani. 

(Cesare Pavese, Settembre 1932)

Suddenly he shouted that it wasn’t fate / that made the world suffer, / that made men curse the light / and the day they were born. / The trouble was man, it was man’s doing. / At least we could pull out, / we could starve to death in freedom, and say No / to a life that makes use of love and family and pity / and a little plot of land to tie us together, / and shackle our hands.

(Cesare Pavese, September 1932)
